Cut and shaped from mild steel plate. This week’s challenge is to decide how to ‘finish‘ them, as this raw steel does not last.

Lily Aylmer Devils Sunset

Lily Aylmer, Devil's Sunset, 1 April, 2020
Whilst being safe at home, it’s hard to have a positive outcome on this terrible virus. I think waking up in the morning with a colourful sunset can brighten your day, so I painted one.

Kay Aitken Worn Out

Kay Aitken, Worn Out, 1 April, 2020
I began drawing through a friend and loved it. This drawing was inspired by a hat I saw whilst visiting the Australian War Memorial in Canberra in 2019.

At home in isolation has made for exploration of mark making tools from the immediate surroundings. Bark from our beautiful gum trees and Japanese ink.

Peter Boyle Steam Punk Blaster

Peter Boyle, Steam Punk Blaster, 30 March, 2020
I have an interest in sci fi and fantasy and have collected all sorts of bits and pieces with the aim of creating this piece and several others in a similar vein.

Sue Holland roses for a friend

Sue Holland, Roses for a friend, 30 March, 2020
I am an amateur Watercolour artist based in Bendigo. I like to continually challenge myself and will paint an image repeatedly until I am happy with it.  I have sold a number of works through art shows which helps buy more supplies! It’s a great skill to have during this lock in.

Michael Watson Isolation Self Protrait

Michael Watson, Isolation Self Portrait, 31 March, 2020
Amidst these dreary and uncertain times, I've decided to take a step back from colour and work tonally. Focusing on chiaroscuro and simplification, this is my my latest oil painting. Back to the fundamentals!

Gail Casey, Studio corner, 5 April, 2020
A happy distraction to paint this last week. Many of these objects have been painted numerous times before but now appearing in a new setting. I love the online gallery - very interesting and motivating.

Angela Morrissey Mary Magdalene

Angela Morrissey, Mary Magdalene, 5 April, 2020
Since Easter is coming up I thought I’d do a drawing of Mary Magdalene Greek Orthodox style with a twist – using bright, unrealistic colours. I studied Classical Greek language and Classical Greek art at university. I want to take the idea of the icon and turn it on its head.

About - and how to contribute:

In these challenging times, we have created an online exhibition as a way of sharing work and encouraging art-making.
 
The aim each week will be to program a diverse exhibition, showing a variety of artistic expression.  We need work that can be put in an online gallery so we’re after a single still image (jpg) – it can be a photograph, a photograph of an artwork or a digital image and you may include text.
 
We encourage all artists living, working or studying in the City of Greater Bendigo to participate.

We’d love as many people to get involved as possible – so even if you’re young or someone who hasn’t exhibited before we’d encourage you to send something in.
 
The gallery will be curated by the team at Creative Communities, Bendigo Venues & Events
 
There's no theme, and the only limit is that we're after work created recently - ideally within the past week.

  1. Create something!
  2. Email a jpg of your work to arts.info@bendigo.vic.gov.au
  3. Provide the following information
    • Name for display:
    • Title of Artwork:
    • Date completed:
    • Brief artist statement (no more than 50 words – Optional)
  4. We need this by 9am each Monday – we’ll make a selection and update the gallery by Tuesday
  5. You can submit one work each week.
